We visited here near the end of our trip while we are staying at the Marriott because it was super convenient after spending all day at the beach and pool. And we were's pleasantly surprised. Of course the view is beautiful here around the pool area at night with all the lights and torches going. And the food was quite... More

We ate at Kukui's because we were too tired to go anywhere else. For the price, the food is very average. The real issue here was the service. The server let us cool our heels for twenty minutes while he "ran food" and did other things because he was "slammed". I get it - sometimes you get too busy for... More

View is priceless, food is ok. The Breakfast Buffet was 30.00 each, but the food selection and the fact that you are sitting on a beautiful beach and pool area. If you are staying at Marriott you can't beat the buffet. Anythn you can think of and more. I love the Portuguese Sausage and the omelet station. The service was... More

Although we weren't staying at the Marriott Hotel, my wife and I and our friends visited 4 times in the week we were in Lihue. The breakfast menu offers a $20 all inclusive price (eggs, meat, hash browns, toast, coffee and juice). The dinner menu is interesting and the portions are large. Try the forbidden rice (cold) salad - or... More

Poolside, wonderful menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kid friendly but also large enough to avoid crowds or noise. Affordable and local as well as resort type dining. Good bar.

Walked to Kukui's from our room at Marriott. Had several breakfasts and dinners. Food was very good and staff was friendly and accomodating. Especially when my wife asked for a ceme brulee oatmeal which is not on menu. Her sister had it once, and hostess said we could have one specially made the next day. Everything was terrific!!!

This was a dinner served poolside in conjunction with a Luau. It was supposed to be a Luau type meal. It was terrible. The meat was dry, dry, dry. Inedible. We left our plates nearly untouched and went to Dukes for edible food. Such a waste of money. Don't go.

We arrived late the night before and thus needed a hearty breakfast after traveling and a nights rest. It was well worth the splurge. Grounds are beautiful Christine our waitress was attentive and full of a wealth of locals knowledge. The muesli cooked with cocoanut milk was great. The fruit was amazing, Pineapple with chili lime sweet and savory. Potato... More
